Single-Handedly by Nalina Moses is an inspiring collection of 220 hand drawings by more than 40 emerging architects and well-known practitioners from around the world. Moses herself was trained to draw both by hand and with digital tools during her study of architecture. Finding it to be direct, pleasurable, and intuitive, she wondered whether other architects felt the same way.
This book explores the reasons architects draw by hand and gives testimony to the continued vitality of hand drawing in architecture. The powerful yet intimate drawings carry larger propositions about materials, space, and construction, and each one stands on its own as a work of art. Moses is an architect and writer in New York City, New York. Her writing on art, architecture, and design has appeared both in print and online.
